Question about Lenovo 330S charging via Barrel connector from a Anker PowerCore+ 26k

So 1 year ago i got myself hands on a Lenovo ideapad 330S i5 for 100€ (just cause the display cable had contact problems)
This is the first time i got a Good usable solid Laptop AND IT WAS ONLY 100€!!.


Anyway i use this Laptop alot and wanted to get a Portable Charger. The Laptop only has Power Delivery per Barrel connector and cant via the USB C plug 😞
I looked at the Anker PowerCore 26K which can Output 20V = 2.25A which the 45W Lenovo Charger uses.

My question is can i use a USB-C too Barrel adapter and charge my Laptop or should i just get a generic Laptop barrel only Portable charger?

My wife has a 330S with a 2500u. If I were in your position, I'd look for a generic power brick with he proper size barrel so you wouldn't need any adapters. I hate having stacks of adapters/dongles. However, I could see the value in a getting a universal one that could be used on a different laptop in the future, if you were so inclined.

Adapter cables with the proper plug and PD trigger start to appear, if you find one that's appropriate for your laptop AND the powerbank is able to supply the voltage/current profile the trigger is going to ask for it should be fine.
